The Big Picture
Ingenuity in Action
After Phase 1 construction was complete, Center of the Arts received several large donations – “if you build it, they will come” – making Phase 2 possible. The Jackson winter in 2006 was especially harsh. During the last concrete pour, temperatures were 17 degrees below zero. In order to remain on schedule, GE Johnson installed significant heaters and weather protection to ensure concrete placements were being performed per cold weather requirements with additional measures. During these harsh conditions of pouring the 80 foot concrete tower, no recordable injuries occurred – a testament to our Zero Injury program and commitment of our team.
